TUESDAYS NOVENA PRAYER

TO ST. ANTHONY OF PADUA

First Day: The Word of God

Willingness to hear the word of God is a sign of predestination.

Let Us Pray. Lord, through the intercession of Anthony, the Evangelical Doctor and messenger of your word, make us hear your Gospel and faithfully live it our. Through Christ our Lord. Amen.

2. All dangers vanish at your prayer, and needs most dire do fly away; let those who know your power proclaim these deeds are yours, let Paduans say.

Refrain: The sea obeys and fetters break, And lifeless limbs you do restore; While treasures lost are found again, When young and old your aid implore.

Second Day: The Wisdom Of The Little Ones

The Old and New Testaments contain the fullness of that understanding which alone can produce wise men.

Third Day: The Doctrine Of Christ

Not many hear the Word of God willingly.
